Product Description

"100 per cent Chardonnay. This is a 'reserve' bottling that comes from Goisot's finest parcels of old vines across their top vineyards. The name Corps de Garde comes from the family's 14th century guardhouse and cellar that was probably used as a hideout when the village was under attack in the medieval period. The fruit comes from 2.5ha spread across the lieux-dits of Belle Croix, Biaumont, Gondonne, Chaussan and Gueules de Loup. Across these sites vine age averages 30 years and the wine is raised exclusively in barrel, one third new. The 2010 is, hands down, the finest example of this wine that we have shipped. There is another level of weight, texture and intensity when compared with the wine above yet similar characteristics of pure, ripe citrus, rock salt, earth and white flowers. There is a wonderful balance between richness and acidity as well as plenty of the tense energy so typical of this great vintage. This is money well spent." - Importer's Note
